On June 14, our neighbor Max Power organized a Bloody Mary contest at Rope. Participating Myrtle Avenue establishments were: Maggie Brown, Chez Lola, Pillow Cafe and Luz.

I missed it and I’m sure many of you did. Apparently Maggie Brown’s Bloody Mary prevailed, beating the runner up by a few votes.
